By voice vote that sounded unanimous, P and Z decided against granting a special exception to the existing C-3 zoning so as to allow Panama City Beach’s Brett Woodward to construct a more than 8,300square foot store on 1.16 acres at U.S. 98 and Clairmont. Woodward, whose limited liability corporation acquired the property in Oct. 2012, was accompanied by his attorney, Bob Hughes, of Panama City. It didn’t take long for the attorney’s comments to spark anger among some members of P & Z. Chairman Tom Daly asked Woodward to speak, and when Hughes sought to accompany his client to the podium, Daly declined, telling Hughes the hearing was not “quasi-judicial.” Woodward told P & Z he had provided a full set of plans for the project in Nov. 2012, when he came for site approval to put in the Family Dollar store. “We want to relocate from the existing location because of poor visibility and more convenience associated with it,” he said. Woodward said he submitted the project through the proper city channels, “tweaked the plan multiple times based on comments we received,” and now sought a special exception for City says no to Family Dollar DAVID ADLERSTEIN | The Times A view of the proposed site for the Family Dollar store.

TDC board member Chester Reese told commissioners Armistead was chosen after a tie vote eliminated Apalachicola innkeeper Lynn Spohrer as a candidate. “It’s been a very contentious time. I would like to say that I hope we can all move on and do the business that the TDC is required to do,” he said. “I’ve got nothing against Mr. Armistead, but I need to know why nobody from Apalachicola’s on it,” asked Commissioner Noah Lockley. “The TDC’s spread all over the county and you’re leaving a whole city out. That don’t look right.” Commissioner Cheryl Sanders asked for an explanation. “Can anyone answer Mr. Lockley’s question?” she said. “This discussion has been long and very dif cult,” replied Reese. “As the TDC has looked at this, Apalachicola is represented, as is Carrabelle. I represent the Chamber (of Commerce) for the city of Carrabelle and Beverly Hewitt represents the Apalachicola Chamber of Commerce. “Both cities have an open access to the TDC for anything. When my (Chamber) members tell me what to do, I follow along with that, as I assume Apalachicola would. I know there’s been a lot of contention about why we don’t have somebody speci cally from (The Guest Lodging Association of Franklin County), but as the board mashed this out, I think, in a generality, that we were looking to represent the entire county. “No speci c place should have any special recommendation. When Mr. Armistead came up and did his talk, he never mentioned about any one speci c place. He came for the goodness and the extension of Franklin County, not necessarily one place, which is why he got the vote,” Armistead con rmed for TDC seat BRETT WOODWARD Bikers usher in holidays Convoy BENEFIT DINNER FOR FRANKLIN TOY PROJECT Today, Nov 21, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Taylor’s Building Supply in Eastpoint, there is a bene t dinner for the Franklin County Toy Project.

At the Nov. 7 city meeting, Carrabelle commissioners learned that Chief Joe Ham would retire on Dec. 31. Ham recommended that Deputy Chief Craig Kincaid be promoted to ll his vacated post. Commissioners voted unanimously to promote Kincaid, who joined the force in Sept. 2006. Gary Hunnings, formerly of the Apalachicola Police Department, was appointed deputy chief and Glen May, currently employed part-time by the Carrabelle police department, will now work full time. In his letter of recommendation, Ham wrote that Kincaid had “an outstanding work ethic, is well knowledgeable and experienced and has character needed for this position.” Although not of cially chief until January 1, Kincaid is already in command as interim chief. Kincaid studied criminal justice at Lewis University in Romeoville, Illinois and at Florida Keys Community College, where he was listed on the President’s Honor List. He holds a bachelor of arts in the subject from St. Xavier University in Chicago, Ill. Kincaid has a law degree from John Marshall Law School in Chicago, Ill. and studied public administration at Illinois Institute of Technology, in Chicago, Ill.. He trained at the Illinois State Police Academy in 1984 and received his Florida Peace Of cer Certi cation after training at Gulf Coast Community College in 2005. Kincaid served on the Blue Island, Ill. Police Department from 1976 to 2004 and was part of an investigation into organized crime there. After joining the Carrabelle force, he was promoted to corporal in 2007 and deputy chief in 2010. During his 35-year career, he has served as both a uniformed and plainclothes of cer, and served on and later led a SWAT team in Illinois. Kincaid has received a Citation Star for Bravery, two Lifesaving Medals and was the Veterans of Foreign Wars Police Of cer of the Year in 1985. He has also received numerous written accommodations and certi cates and letters of appreciation. Kincaid is a certied instructor in several elds including crowd control, traf c direction, SWAT team tactics, rearms instruction, booking and custody procedures and crisis intervention.

That category had invited much concern among the community when it was determined last year the project had to go through a special exception process, since it was not a permitted use under C-3. “I think you have to be careful how you construe specialty retail,” said Daly. Hughes was given time to speak and the attorney began by saying he felt something was wrong with the process. “I am surprised that we are here tonight at all,” he said, noting that P & Z in April 2012 had voted unanimously “to conrm that this project would t into C-3 zoning.” City Administrator Betty Webb followed up on that meeting ve months later with a Sept. 19, 2012 letter to Woodward summarizing P & Z’s actions. Later, a more thorough reading of the land use regulations indicated that the project needed vetting through the special exception process, and by then community opposition, led by contiguous neighbors, had begun to gel. Hughes told P & Z the nearby areas to the parcel in question were full of commercial businesses, including the Best Western, Rancho Inn, a closed service station and an open one complete with a convenience store, a closed restaurant soon to be reopened, and the NAPA auto parts store. “This site was the site of a motel before this happened,” said the attorney. Hughes said his client spent a little more than $300,000 thus far on the project, about $245,000 for the land and the remainder for legal costs and other fees. He then summarized the legal doctrine of estoppel, which could enable a judge to require the city bear Woodward’s costs if it is determined he acted in good faith based on ofcial actions. “This board in April 2012 told Mr. Woodward that his project t in the C-3 zoning and Ms. Webb conrmed that in a letter,” said Hughes. “The doctrine of estoppel says this board can’t back up on that now. “If the board does not do what is right tonight to go ahead and grant the special exception if you don’t, we’re going to end up in court,” said the attorney. “The judge can say ‘Board, you should have conrmed what you did before, you can’t back up.’ Or the judge could say the board had some reason and they had the right to do what they did, and they denied the special exception. “But if the court does that (rule against the city), the court can order the city to pay Mr. Woodward’s company the $300,000 he spent.” Daly interjected that “we said at the time that it was consistent, we didn’t tell him to go forward.” It was Daly’s colleague Geoff Hewell who voiced his strong displeasure. “I thought he had the cart ahead of the horse when I saw he brought the property,” Hewell told the attorney. “Don’t threaten me.” Former mayor speaks against plan Speaking on behalf of neighbors to the property, Sandy Howze, a former mayor and building inspector, asked P & Z to pay attention to specics required of special exceptions. He said a dollar store, which is not mentioned anywhere in the land use code, would require a determination of specialty retail. “Dollar stores are a higher intensity use than what’s allowed,” he said. “I don’t know of a convenience store in the county that has 44 parking spaces. This does not comply with the purpose and intent. “Be careful what you’re doing,” Howze said. “I don’t think this thing should ever have been heard in the rst place.” He also noted the April 2012 P & Z meeting item, when it was voted to determine the proposal was consistent with zoning, was on the agenda for the issue of signage. “They ended up adding an important request as an afterthought,” said Howze. “They started out asking for a sign, and ended up sliding in this dollar store.” Several other audience members, when they rose to speak, accused the developer of this apparent subterfuge. In an interview following the meeting, when he voiced disappointment with P & Z’s decision, Woodward said he took issue with that accusation. He said he came to P & Z in earnest because he thought a possible limitation on the size of signage would kill the deal from the outset. He said he had not intended to ask for a zoning decision at that time, but that after P & Z unanimously endorsed the overall plan, he assumed the matter was resolved and asked Webb to put the determination in writing, typical of developers who may need such documentation for nancing. Howze also said he believed the wording in the legal advertisement was both inaccurate and misleading. “There’s supposed to be sign markers on that property,” he said. “The site plans did not show enough detail to evaluate. How can anybody make an intelligent decision on what should be done or what shouldn’t be done?” Woodward received support from former Apalachicola resident Randy Butler, now of Panama City, who said that the developer had invited him to speak “because he knew I grew up here. I wish this many people had shown up in April.” But, beginning with Apalachicola attorney Steve Watkins, who represented project opponents Jim and Patsy Philyaw, and Beverly Coxwell, the consensus of speakers was in rm opposition to the project. “They have taken and misconstrued the minutes of what you guys decided,” said Watkins. “It was obvious to know what they’re doing is trying to ram this down your throat. They are saying ‘Hey, we got this approval to say it meets the intent of C-3.’ That is not a right, that determination has not been made at this point. Watkins said a specialty store would require “appropriate conditions and safeguards. At this point I think you’re right on track and do the right thing.” Susan Mackin, a nearby resident on Shadow Lane, said she shops regularly at the existing Family Dollar store. “It’s in a ne location as it is,” she said. (Our neighborhood) is in a period of revitalization. The noise, the bright lights, the trafc my fear is that trafc is going to be overwhelming, and the potential that it has on drainage issues.” Apalachicola resident C.J. Weyrich said the site includes some oak trees, and numerous longleaf pine trees, which she said were classied as endangered. “We are all striving to keep the natural ora and fauna alive for future generations,” she said. Weyrich’s daughter, Merrill Livingston, also spoke against the proposal. “On behalf of the younger generation, we live her and we want to live here in the belief the town will always have the charm,” she said. “Right now it’s a great location, one of the last beautiful properties on 98. It’s untouched.” City resident Liza Brown said she was concerned about the effect that deliveries would make, with “noisy trucks all the time day or night.” ‘We don’t think it’s a good t’ Daly asked city zoning consultant Cindy Clark about what effect ood regulations would have on developing the site. Clark said it was her understanding that the elevation of the rst oor would have to be at least 11 feet above sea level. City resident Fran Bauer said she had several concerns, noting the existing store, adjacent to the Gulfside IGA, “is very well situated for a lot of trafc in and out. The proposed site does not have great visibility on 98, and there could be possible accidents,” she said. “With 44 parking spaces, you’re talking about a huge amount of concrete. Everything is going to ow downhill which is going to be Philaco Shores.” Bauer said she found Hughes’ threatening remarks “highly offensive,” prompting the attorney to speak out. “I want to apologize to the board for something I didn’t do,” he said. “If I insulted or threatened, you, if you took it that way, that was not my intent. I was only conveying the information.” Carrie Kienzle, who heads the board of adjustment, said P & Z’s actions in April 2012 were in keeping with a tradition of being accommodating. “When people come to us, we don’t want to jump the gun. They try to be nice, they try to be genteel,” she said. “It was my understanding the discussion was about a sign. This is a slippery slope to a cement ghetto.” Once P & Z returned to the regular meeting, action on the item was swift. Webb said infrastructure aspects of the project passed a preliminary site review, and that her ofce had sent out 66 letters to neighbors within a 500-foot radius. She said returns showed 23 against (and four more nays that came in after the deadline), seven in favor and two undeliverable. In response to a question from P & Z member Sally Williamson, as to why he had purchased the property without stipulation the sale was contingent on necessary government approvals, Woodward said the parcel was “a foreclosure piece of property that the bank needed to get off their books by a drop-dead date.” P & Z member Lynn Wilson said the area in question is “not really an intense district, it’s more of a residential area with some commercial on a low scale. Port St. Joe and Apalachicola have integrated comfortably business and residential, in an atmosphere that is special in Florida. We want to stay unique. We’re not going to open our borders to any old thing that comes along.” Just before the vote, Daly said that “it’s unfortunate that we’ve created this back and forth. We voted on something very quickly without thinking it through at that time. Bet we never did approve a special exception. “The bottom line is we don’t think it’s a good t, a specialty store would not generate the kind of trafc that a Family Dollar would. I don’t think it’s right for this community; it creates more trafc in a place that doesn’t need more trafc.” said Reese. “Technically though, for the board representation, the city of Apalachicola and the city of Carrabelle have two representatives,” said Commissioner Pinki Jack el. “They do have chamber representatives but also have city representatives.” Lockley persisted. “I’m talking about the motels, hotels and inns, the bed tax providers,” he said. “These people own hotels. I think they should be represent ed.” Jackel said the matter had been discussed nu merous times at the TDC. “The openings have always been open to every citizen in Franklin County,” she said. “One of the things that was expressed by one of the groups that came before the TDC, what was presented, would actually take an amendment to the Florida statute.” Jackel said that appoint ing a representative speci cally an Apalachicola lodg ing provider group would have required a change to the law. “I spoke with the county attorney about that and we can’t change the wording of the Florida stat ute,” she said. “That type of action that we were pre sented with is not legally acceptable by the terms of the Florida statute or by county ordinance.” Lockley asked if board members have a term limit. Jackel said they did, and that no current member was near the limit. “There will be openings coming up,” she said. TDC Director Curt Blair said appointees represent ing the chambers of com merce, and board members representing the county commission and the two city commissions, are all subject to reappointment annually. He said the re maining members are ap pointed for four-year terms. Judi Stokowski, vice president of the Guest Lodging Association of Franklin County, said mem bership in the group is not limited to Apalachicola pro viders. “It’s for the smaller hotels and bed and break fasts. We expanded that to Franklin County. “I think there’s been some spin put on some things,” said Stokowski. “We have membership throughout the county from Alligator Point, through all aspects of the county. Flori da statute allows municipal governments to serve seats. We have a certain number of memberships that must be tax collectors, those that are bringing in that 2 per cent occupancy tax. As tax providers, the small guest lodging is not having a voice in marketing.” Stokowski praised Ar mistead as “a good and honest man” but said her group still believed it was underrepresented. “We want transparency; we want to be able to voice our opinions. We’re not try ing to get something that we’re not entitled to under the law. It gives me pause when a citizen as highly qualied as Lynn Wilson Spohrer is overlooked time and time again. I think it’s a pity we’re not looking at people who have talent in our community,” she said. This is all-volunteer. She’s not looking for a job. Instead of increasing the tax dollars, let’s increase the occupancy of those peo ple coming into our county. All that we’re asking is that the TDC be run more ef ciently and more effective ly,” said Stokowski. Jackel said Armistead’s company owned the Buc caneer Inn on St. George Island, making him a small lodging provider and that he maintains an ofce in Apalachicola. “What I’m hearing is that this is no reection on (Armistead),” Sanders said. “They just want some representation too.” Commissioner Smokey Parrish said, “I’ve said it a thousand times and I’m not going to say anything else this morning. It continually falls on deaf ears. I’ve told y’all the lodging providers over here wanted repre sentation. Obviously, that’s not going to happen. I don’t have a problem with Mr. Ar mistead. I think he’ll do the county a service.” Sanders said then re ferred to a passage in last week’s article, “TDC votes to recommend Armistead” in which it was reported that Jackel and Blair had left the room together and after a short time, returned. “I’m really concerned that, reading the Apalachic ola Times, the newspaper article was quoted as say ing that Mr. Blair and Ms. Jackel went into the back room and then came back and said about the Roberts Rules of Order,” said Sand ers. “Curt, would you get us a copy of those minutes be cause when you read some thing in the local newspa per, it is not always right.” Jackel took exception to the Times’ description. “That’s not accurate,” she said. “I went to the back, by myself. Alan Pierce was in his ofce and I went in and closed the door.” She said she and Pierce, in the room alone, tried unsuccessfully to tele phone the county attorney. She said they then made a phone call “to another counsel” for advice on the tie vote. “Curt and I did not exit the (meeting room) togeth er and those are the facts. I have a witness on my side,” said Jackel. “That’s the reason it had to be cleared up in public,” said Sanders. “Next time, if you can’t get Mr. Shuler, put it on hold because he’s the county at torney,” Lockley said.

Circulation: 1-800-345-8688 Formerly The Apalachicola Times O PINION Thursday, November 21, 2013 A Section By SHELLEY SWENSON Special to the Times You have been roasting a turkey for years; you know all about it! Let’s review a few key points that affect the quality and the safety of the bird. • Allow one pound of turkey per person. • USDA recommends only buying frozen prestuffed turkeys that display the USDA or state mark of inspection on the packaging. These turkeys are safe because they have been processed under controlled conditions. Do not thaw before cooking. Cook from the frozen state and follow package directions. • Do not buy fresh pre-stuffed turkeys. If not handled properly, any harmful bacteria that may be in the stuf ng can multiply very quickly. • Turkeys can be kept frozen in the freezer inde nitely; however, cook within one year for best quality. There are three ways to safely thaw your turkey: • In the refrigerator, allow approximately 24 hours for every four to ve pounds. A thawed turkey can remain in the refrigerator for one to two days. If necessary, a turkey that has been properly thawed in the refrigerator may be refrozen. • In cold water, allow approximately 30 minutes per pound. Wrap your turkey securely making sure that water is not able to leak through the wrapping. Change the water every 30 minutes. Cook the turkey immediately after it is thawed. Do not refreeze. • In the microwave, rst check your owner’s manual for the size turkey that will t in your microwave oven, the minutes per pound and power level to use for thawing. Remove all outside wrapping. Place on a microwave-safe dish to catch any juices that leak. Cook your turkey immediately. Do not refreeze or refrigerate your turkey after thawing in the microwave. • Remove the giblets from the turkey cavities after thawing and cook separately. There is hardly anyone who at some time has not cooked the turkey with the giblets in the cavity. If the packing plant wrapped the giblets in a parchment paper bag, there is no harm to either. Sometimes packing plants place the giblets in a plastic pouch. Examine the plastic to see if it has melted or been altered in any way. If there is evidence that the heat has altered the state of the plastic, do not eat the giblets or the turkey. • What about stuf ng? Currently, experts recommend that the safest way to cook stuf ng is separate from the turkey. The stuf ng must be cooked to 165F. • REMEMBER! Always wash with soap and water your hands, utensils, the sink and anything else that comes in contact with raw turkey and its juices. • Discard any turkey, stuf ng and gravy left out at room temperature longer than two hours; one hour in temperatures above 90 F. Don’t forget to refrigerate your leftovers before you move into another family activity. • Use the leftover turkey and stuf ng within three to four days. While you want your family feasts to be memorable, using precautions to keep your family safe from foodborne illness will help make sure you remember the feast for the right reasons!

Guest COLUMN Let’s talk turkey preparation Special to The Times Deanna “DT” Simmons, a 2004 graduate of Apalachicola High School who joined the Peace Corps in 2011, will be returning home for a visit soon and stay until Dec 29. An Apalachicola native, she is the daughter of Elinor Mount-Simmons and Bernard Simmons. During her visit, H’COLA will sponsor a meetand-greet event so the community can come out and listen as Deanna shares of her Peace Corps experiences. The date will be announced later. Simmons began her service in Ethiopia, living in the small community of Injibara, also known as Kosober, in the Amhara region. As a Peace Corps volunteer, she served as a volunteer in the community health and HIV prevention sector, working on water sanitation, HIV prevention, agricultural preservation, and youth and gender empowerment through a series of mentorship programs. Simmons also led the Injibara Clean Water Garden and HIV Prevention Project, which now brings water to more than 5,000 students, staff and teachers at the local high school. The school had not had running water for years and when Simmons shared this news of this with her family, she said the jubilation from the students at having this water ow from their school faucets was like Christmas morning for us back in the states. This project was highly successful and through this awareness program organized by Simmons and her counterparts, the preparatory school of their community was awarded the President’s Green Hero Award for their diligent efforts in environmental conservation and indigenous agricultural preservation. Having recently completed a 27-month contract, Simmons has accepted a competitive third-year extension position with the Peace Corps as a training unit leader. Her work includes ensuring quality technical and cross-cultural sessions for both pre-service and in-service trainings for Peace Corps Volunteer trainees, with the primary focus of providing support, as well as improving the preparation and experience of the new volunteer. Currently Simmons lives and works in the nation’s capital, Addis Ababa, one of the continent’s largest cities located within the Horn of Africa. In an Oct. 3 email, Carrie Hessler-Radelet, acting director of the Peace Corps, wrote that she had visited with Simmons during a recent trip to Ethiopia as part of an Aspen Institutesupported congressional delegation focused on “Development in Africa.” On the day set aside for Peace Corps, Simmons and eight of her fellow Volunteers and Peace Corps Country Director Greg Engle, met with Hessler-Radelet. Following that, the group, together with two dozen members of Congress and their spouses, and a dozen or so experts, piled into buses and drove two-and-onehalf hours each way to visit Peace Corps Volunteers in Ambo, a medium-sized town southwest of Addis. When the group visited a school, they were introduced to a classroom where an English club recited a poem. The group then visited with several teenage girls who had attended a Peace Corpssupported girls leadership camp. The girls led everyone in a game of “Elephants and Lions” to increase awareness of the side effects of HIV/AIDS. The group was impressed by the knowledge, poise and English language skills of the girls, who presented each of them with a friendship bracelet. The group also visited a health center, where they learned about work to support people living with disabilities. Later they visited a demonstration permagarden on the grounds of the health center, the handiwork of a group of HIV positive women, a beautiful, large garden from which the women were able to get fresh fruits and vegetables. Hessler-Radelet said Simmons shared her Peace Corps experience with the members of Congress, who were overwhelmingly impressed with what they saw and learned. The acting Peace Corps director said Simmons was articulate about her life in Ethiopia, and willing to discuss both the joys and the challenges of serving there. “I’m sure you are very proud of Deanna and all she is accomplishing,” wrote Hessler-Radelet. “She is an enormous help to our training staff. I was able to visit the training site where DT was working and it is clear that the trainees love her and really look up to her as a role model and friend.” “I’m sure it is hard to have her so far away – especially for third year --and you must miss her a lot, but I hope you are comforted by knowing what a great job she is doing,” Hessler-Radelet wrote. “We recognize that her Peace Corps service is a sacri ce for you and your family as well, and we really appreciate your continued support and encouragement of Deanna’s service. Family support means so much to our volunteers.” “She is an incredible Volunteer. She has such a bright future ahead of her, and I was so glad I got to meet her,” she wrote. Special to The Times The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) last week announced new measures to help get small business loans into the hands of veterans by setting the borrower up-front fee to zero for all veteran loans authorized under the SBA Express program up to $350,000. This initiative will start on January 1 and continue through the end of the scal year. “Our nation’s veterans are highly-skilled and highly-trained leaders in their communities,” said Acting SBA Administrator Jeanne Hulit. “This initiative will set fees to zero for SBA Express loans to veterans up to $350,000, and is part of SBA’s broader efforts to make sure that veterans have the tools they need to start and grow a business. As we honor our veterans and thank them for their service and sacri ce, let’s continue to identify ways to support them when they come home.” Of all SBA loans that go to veterans, 73 percent are $350,000 and below. The SBA Express Loan Program, which supports loans under $350,000, is SBA’s most popular loan delivery method, with nearly 60 percent of all 7(a) loans over the past decade being authorized through the program. Since the program’s inception, it has also been one of the most popular delivery methods for getting capital into the hands of veteran borrowers. Building on SBA’s recent announcement that for the current scal year, fees on loans for $150,000 and under are set to zero, this policy announcement means that veteran borrowers will no longer have to pay an up-front fee for any loan up to $350,000 under the SBA Express program. This new initiative will go into effect January 1 and extend for the duration of the scal year. This will make the loans cheaper for the borrower, another way SBA is looking to serve small business owners as they look for ways to access capital. This announcement comes during SBA’s National Veterans Small Business Week, an initiative on the part of the U.S. Small Business Administration to reach out to veteran entrepreneurs and business owners. During Veterans Small Business Week, SBA staff all across the country have been working with partner organizations on educational efforts, mentoring, and trainings to make sure veterans have the tools they need to start or grow their business. SBA provides veterans access to business counseling and training, capital and business development opportunities through government contracts. In FY 2013, SBA supported $1.86 billion in loans for 3,094 veteranowned small businesses. And since 2009, the dollar amount of SBA lending support to veteran-owned rms has nearly doubled.

Local A6 | The Times Thursday, November 21, 2013 By BRIAN HUGHES 682-6524 | @cnbBrian The only bad thing about the Panhandle Players’ production of “Any Number Can Die” is that by the time you read this, it’s already had its weekend run and some of you missed it. That’s a shame because the witty send-up of 1920s murder mysteries was a wonderful evening of laughs and whodunit speculation. Most enjoyable about Fred Carmichael’s 1960s hit is the audience is in on the joke from the very beginning. Under the steady hand of director Megan Lamb, all the requisite elements of an Agatha Christiesque tale are included. Spooky house in the middle of nowhere: check. Crashing thunderstorm: check. Unreliable electrical service: check. Secret panels and passages: check. Suspicious servants: check. A diverse assembly for the reading of a will (at midnight, of course), including one or two red herrings: check. An indefatigable police inspector: check The strength of the Panhandle Players’ production of “Any Number Can Die” lies both in Edward Aguiar’s gorgeous, superbly crafted set, which, complete with a plethora of secret panels, passages and peep holes is practically another character itself, and an eager cast breathing believability into familiar, clich characters. Community theatrefolk are sometimes called “actors by night.” During the day they have “real” jobs, so the performances you see on stage come from the heart. It’s when real estate agents, bankers and even newspaper editors unleash their inner muses, and in “Any Number,” the troupe let theirs run wild. Particular kudos must go to retired barrister Henry Kozlowsky as hapless inspector Hannibal Hix on his rst case, who pushes his inner Maxwell Smart up to but not quite over-the-top. “Someone is not who he is but who he isn’t,” he wisely intones in mid-investigation. Ably assisting him – or is it the other way around? – is Elizabeth Sisung’s capable poker-wielding Ernestine Wintergreen, who upon her rst entrance to the Dixie Theatre stage brought fondly to mind the late First Lady of the American theatre, Helen Hayes, at rst a meek elder but, in fact, anything but. There are no “little” roles in “Any Number Can Die.” Katie Maxwell’s sweet Sally Van Viller, for example, brought bounce and innocence to an heiressapparent. Royce Rolstad III as journalist Jack Regent was every show’s knight in shining armor, oozing gallantry from every pore. Judy Loftus as the mysterious barefoot Haitian housekeeper Zenia was a fun romp, and her Creole accent held up steadily throughout the night. (I’ve always been a stickler for accents.) With dismissal worthy of Basil Fawlty, lawyer Ruth Masters, performed effectively by Bobbi Ann Seward, explains Zenia’s oddness with “She’s from Haiti.” Tom Loughridge’s butler, Edgars, was but slightly more loquacious than Lurch. His periodic glances beyond the fourth wall spoke volumes and drew laughter. “Didn’t I see his face on a ying buttress at Notre Dame?” asks Ernestine. As the failed millionaire T.J. Lathrop, Steve Allen, who reminded some of us immediately of Paul Bartel, was pleasantly unemotional. As his spoiled wife Celia, another heiress-apparent, Jeana Crozier was deliciously snotty. “I’m not a wicked woman, really,” she said. “Just greedy.” One of the biggest guffaws of the evening went to The Times editor David Adlerstein’s Carter Forstman, a Yalie with pomposity to spare – and a deadly secret – who brought down the house when he sneered upon Jack’s entrance “He’s a reporter! Sally, don’t say anything. He’ll misquote you.” Adding verisimilitude to Saturday night’s performance was a reallife rainstorm pelting the Dixie Theatre. As Hix the investigator observed, “Perfect! The storm’s raging in all its fury. They always have storms for reading of wills.” Thunder, lightning, a mysterious hoot owl and an ominous black-cloaked specter coming and going through secret passages combined with a skillful cast, director, set designer and Patrick Leach’s effective lighting to give a fun, new twist to a story that brought the appreciative audience a warm feeling of dj vu. Just as I always look forward to visiting delightful Apalachicola, I’ll eagerly await catching another Panhandle Players production at the Dixie Theatre.

Lanark block party weathers the storm BY LOIS SWOBODA 653-1819 | @ ApalachTimes In spite of drizzly skies, Lanark’s rst block party drew a crowd. On Sunday, Nov. 17, members of the Lanark Village Association (LVA) hosted a block party to boost membership and introduce Lanarkians to their neighbors. A crowd turned out, bringing covered dishes and healthy appetites with them. Carole Dadonna said more than 100 guests signed in with her. Five joined the LVA on Sunday and many more expressed an interest in joining. Organizer Dot Bless said LVA had expected a turnout of 50 and everyone was pleased with strong response. “A lot of the new people moving in or even some who have been here for some time have never taken part in village activities and don’t know about LVA and Chillas Hall,” said Bless. Lunch consisted of hamburgers and hot dogs provided by the association and prepared by Eric Cichy, along with covered dishes shared by the guests. Two tables groaned with the big selection of tasty treats. Although the day was bleak, Chillas Hall was warm and welcoming and the block party was a cheerful event predicting a festive holiday season to come. Organizers said they want to thank everyone who attended and supported the effort. Bless said LVA is planning a big community Thanksgiving dinner on Thanksgiving Day at 1 p.m. LVA members eat free and guests pay $5. Sign up for the meal at Chillas Hall so organizers can plan for the right number of people. Members should bring a covered dish and the turkey will be provided. Coffee hour at Chillas Hall is from 9 to 11 a.m. Monday through Friday. Come join your neighbors for a cuppa and sign up for turkey day. Bless said volunteers are needed to help decorate for the dinner, and to assist with cooking and clean up after dinner. For more information, call Bless at (850) 4081308.

Email outdoors news to timesoutdoors @star .com Thursday, November 21, 2013 O UTDOORS Section Section A The oleander caterpillar, Syntomeida epilais Walker, a bright orange caterpillar with tufts of long black hairs, is a common sight on and around oleanders in Florida. In South Florida, the oleander caterpillar can cause considerable defoliation. In the Panhandle, this is rarely a problem but this caterpillar can cause other headaches for homeowners, especially on the beach. Like all butter ies and caterpillars, this Halloween-colored worm undergoes complete metamorphosis and creates a cocoon in which to transform. The caterpillars often leave their host plant and look for a protected place to undergo their change. For some reason, the base of siding is a preferred site. Especially in the fall, horri ed homeowners may nd their driveway, or the slab beneath a stilt house, overrun with these whiskery worms as they migrate toward the structure. An application of most over-the-counter pesticides labeled for outdoor use, and a broom or leaf blower, should solve the problem. These mass migrations are usually short-lived. This caterpillar transforms into an unusual moth that ies during the day and resembles a large, brightly colored wasp. This stage is commonly referred to as the polka dot wasp moth or the Uncle Sam bug because it is bright red and blue with starry white spots. When mating, females contact male polka-dot wasp moths by means of ultrasonic signals that travel through a branch. The male follows the sound to his new mate, and when he reaches her, emits an answering signal. The eggs, found in clusters on the underside of oleander leaves, are pale cream to light yellow spheres, and measure less than 1 mm in diameter. One method of control is to remove and destroy foliage with eggs. You can also handpick the larvae from oleander plants but wear gloves and wash your hands afterwards. This moth is an invasive imported from the Caribbean by Spanish settlers during the 17th century, probably carried to the mainland on ornamental oleander plants. In its native range, it is believed to have fed on a relatively rare vine in the dogbane family also found in Florida. Because it feeds on oleander, which is poisonous, this insect also contains poisonous compounds called glycosides. These are similar to the toxins found in milkweed and sequestered by monarch butter ies. Just as birds and small mammals avoid feeding on monarchs, they avoid the oleander caterpillar. Natural enemies include predatory stinkbugs, parasitic tachinid ies and wasps, and ants including the red imported re ant. BUDS ‘N’ BUGS Lois Swoboda Oleander caterpillars can be a headache LOIS SWOBODA | The Times Special to The Times The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service reports that nearly 50 million people in the United States are “bird-watchers,” many of whom set up elaborate (and expensive) feeding stations to attract wild birds into their own backyards. Total U.S. expenditures on bird-watching equipment, eld guides, food, and travel exceeds $30 billion (yes with a “B”) annually. Why is bird-watching so popular? In his new book, “Bird Brains: Inside the Strange Minds of Our Fine Feathered Friends,” Budd Titlow explains that wild birds are windows on the natural world. They all have stories to tell us. If we carefully watch and listen to them, we will understand what each bird has to “say” about themselves and the world in which they – and we – live. In “Bird Brains,” Titlow tells his favorites stories about 100 wild birds. Illustrated with stunning photographs, these stories come from things he has seen, heard, and learned during 40 years of roaming the hills and dales, prairies and pastures, and swamps and shores of our great land. Titlow wrote “Bird Brains” as a book for everyone, from seasoned birders to anyone searching for an engrossing new pastime. His goal is to inspire readers of all ages and backgrounds to disconnect from their electronic tethers, that now seem to control everything we do, and head outdoors to discover their own stories about birds and the other marvelous creatures with whom we share this planet. The book’s conclusion encourages us all to take actions that will combat the primary threats to Earth’s avian diversity – global warming, nonsustainable development, loss of conservation land/ open space, and reliance on non-renewable energy resources. A professional wildlife biologist and wetlands scientist, with a bachelor’s of science from Florida State University and a master’s of science from Virginia Tech, and now residing in Tallahassee, Titlow has authored three natural history books, “Bird Brains: Inside the Strange Minds of Our Fine Feathered Friends” (The Lyons Press Globe Pequot Press), “Seashells Jewels from the Ocean” (Voyageur Press), and “Rocky Mountain National Park Beyond Trail Ridge” (Westcliffe Publishers). Titlow’s photographs have won awards in most major international and national natural history photo contests. He has also published more than 100 photoessays and 5,000 photographs. Throughout his career, Titlow has delighted in sharing his love of photography and nature by presenting seminars and workshops nationwide. BOOK SIGNING Author Budd Titlow will be available to sign books at Apalachicola’s Downtown Books, 67 Commerce St., Between 1 and 3 p.m. this Saturday, Nov. 23.

CARRABELLE • APALACHICOLA CARRABELLE • APALACHICOLA S PORTS Thursday, November 21, 2013 A Section By DAVID ADLERSTEIN 653-8894 | @ApalachTimes dadlerstein@star .com Count on the Seahawks varsity boys basketball team to run this year. And run and run. Coach Michael Sweatt said without an experienced big man, but with several veteran seniors, it’s going to be a matter of speed over size. “We have no bigs. We’re guard-oriented, no doubt about it,” he said. “Our team goal this year is to run. That’s it. Number one, we’re going to run, and number two, we’re going to play the hardest defense we can play. “We call it ‘refense’ instead of defense, because if you can’t rebound, you might as well not play defense,” he said. “If we don’t rebound the basketball, we’re not going to be able to compete.” The team, which had a good summer, going 24-9 in the offseason, opened last week with a pre-season tournament at Port St. Joe. The team fell to FAMU Nov. 14 and to Blountstown the next evening. Against FAMU, the team was dominated by an experienced Baby Rattler squad, which won 69-32 after easily topping Franklin County in each of the four quarters. “They were guard-oriented, very experienced, all of their six new players,” Sweatt said. “They were a transition-run team.” Freshman Tyler Howard led the team with 10 points, hitting 50 percent from the eld, with junior Kelsey Jones kicking in six. Senior James Gordon added ve points, eighth-grader Tyler Farmer four, sophomore Josue Barahona and freshman Kenneth Wilson each three, and senior Cameron White one. Overall, the team shot just 20 percent from the eld and hit only one of the 18 threepointers they attempted. White led the team with eight rebounds, with Jones and Howard each snaring ve, Gordon bringing down four, and Wilson and Farmer each three. In the low scoring game against Blountstown, in which the Seahawks fell 5536 after a disastrous fourth quarter, the game was close for the rst three stanzas. Trailing 17-12 at the half, the Seahawks were behind by four, 27-23, going into the fourth quarter. “We played our best manto-man defense so far,” Sweatt said. “In the fourth quarter, our breakdown was in transition. We were down by 10 late in the game and they broke the press and hit a few late free throws.” Jones and Howard led the team with eight points each. Overall, the team shot a lackluster 32 percent from the eld, and 17 percent from three-point range. They hit two-thirds of the 12 free throws they attempted. Gordon, White and Barahona each added six points, while Wilson added two. White led the team with 11 rebounds, with Howard snaring six and Jones ve. Sweatt said senior guard James Gordon has played strong defense in the preseason. “I expect him to be our defensive leader,” he said. “Our team is going to feed off what he brings to us.” The coach said the team’s motto is “Head, Heart and Hustle” and has set its sights on double-digit wins and a berth in the playoffs. Playing for the junior varsity, coached by ABC School physical education teacher and former Apalachicola Sharks hoop standout Mackenzie Williams, are Farmer and Jones as varsity alternates, together with Tanner Boone, Cash Creamer, Quantavius Fuller, Jaylon Gainer, Johnny Jones, Jan Lowe, Austin McKey, Matt Murray, Landon Nash, Jake Patterson and Michael Wilkes. The teams travel to Wewahitchka today, Nov. 21, and then are at home Friday night against Aucilla Christian. On Monday, they travel to Altha.

The four senior midelders controlled the middle third of the eld and unleashed multiple shots on goal. Senior Jessica Shields got loose in the alley and scored two goals in the rst half, earning Player of the Match. Dominating time of possession, another 13 shots were taken before the half by Adrianna Reeder, Emily Zingarelli, Allie Kirvin and Gracyn Kirvin. “It is really neat to see glimpses of our potential when the offense plays like that,” Coach Joe Shields said. The Lady Seahawk defense all but shut down JP II’s advancements, limiting the Lady Panthers to just four shots prior to the half. “Allie Millender was ridiculous tonight. She was all over the eld, dispossessing passes, charging into the fray, making excellent decisions; she de nitely is seeing the entire eld now and understands what needs to be done,” Shields said. After the break, the Seahawks returned to their possession-style game and continued hammering away at the Panther goal. Midelder Gracyn Kirvin, who continued blistering the goalie on her own, made an outstanding pass to forward Allie Kirvin, who buried it in the back of the net in the third period to ice the game. “With the game in hand, I was able to make some substitutions which is obviously good, going forward, to get these ladies some game-time experience. I thought senior rst year player Marlyn Lee stood out with some effective defense in the back,” Shields said. Lady Seahawk soccer blanks John Paul Seahawks basketball team ready to run
